Scotland boasts seven incredible cities to visit that are all so very different in character, including Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Most of the cities have their own regional airports making transfers to the teachers home timely and cost effective.


From Business English courses to General English courses, our mission is to provide an unforgettable English Experience for all of our students.

Scotland, the U.K.’s northernmost country, is a land of mountain wildernesses such as the Cairngorms and Northwest Highlands, interspersed with glacial glens (valleys) and lochs (lakes). Its major cities are Edinburgh, the capital, with its iconic hilltop castle, and Glasgow, famed for its vibrant cultural scene. Scotland is also famous for golf, the game first played at the Old Course at St Andrews in the 1400s.



If you’re looking the mystery of Nessie and the wonder of the Northern Lights, then Scotland’s for you.
